I suggest you studying these books:
I learnt a great deal of information from the Python for Programmers title.
Besides you can take a look at Fernando’s starter page at http://fperez.org/py4science/starter_kit.html You can find many valuable general Python sources listed there (especially tutorial videos from PyCon09)
I can also suggest you trying Eclipse + PyDev combination. PyDev makes debugging and following the flow of your programs very easier. For instance;
import matplotlib.pypot as plt
and set a breakpoint in the first line and step into the matplotlib code to see how it flows.

I’m beginning to read aboutPython OOP, classes, inheritance and the like. It seems like an understanding of those concepts is key to understanding how the import needs are met.
